This week we take a closer look at a local issue. On May 1st, Nashville will be voting on a mass transit plan that promises to fix the crippling gridlock that’s plagued its citizens for the last several years. Yes you heard it right, government thinks it’s the answer to fixing gridlock. All they need is more money, and they can for sure fix the problem. Assuming they are the first government in history to come in within the budget and on time, it should only cost about $9 billion and be finished by 2032.
We brought on a very special guest to help us understand the plan in more detail. Hannah Cox from the Beacon Center of Tennessee, joins us to drink whiskey, make sarcastic jokes, and maybe discuss “Let’s Move, Nashville” a little too.
The Beacon Center describes itself as “a nonprofit, nonpartisan, and independent organization dedicated to providing expert empirical research and timely free market solutions to public policy issues in Tennessee.” Hannah does a great job destroying the transit plan, so check out the episode and tell us what you think!
